A THURSDAY night match at GMHBA Stadium highlights the next fixture release for Geelong’s VFL team.

The AFL has released rounds 5 and 6 of the 2021 season, with the Cats to host Coburg in Round 6 on May 20.

It follows a trip to Casey Fields on Saturday, May 15 for a match-up with the Casey Demons.

The Thursday game will be the Cats’ second in three rounds, with Shane O’Bree’s charges taking on the Northern Bullants at Marvel Stadium this week.

Meanwhile, the finals-bound VFLW Cats will hit the road in rounds 11 and 12.

Geelong, which holds a 7-2 win-loss record ahead of a clash with Essendon this week, will head to Trevor Barker Beach Oval in Round 11 for a meeting with the Southern Saints.

The following week sees Andrew Bruce’s team travelling to Carlton to take on the Blues.
